||bootstrap physics by Timothy Vajda is an album of instrumental music in a unique style, distinguished by the use of early and modern instruments. The viola da gamba, or bass viol, is featured and is used in combination with electric guitar, synthesizer, acoustic guitar, medieval fiddle, and percussion.|
| Vajda plays all the instruments and writes all the
tunes on this instrumental disc, and it is really compelling. His
primary instrument is the viola da gamba, which looks like a cello,
plays like a cello ó but itís a viola. Regardless of my ignorance on
that topic, I can still appreciate the beauty of this music. Soothing,
intriguing and different enough to make it stand out.

I'm particularly excited about this album... I was really inspired by Vajda's modern uses of the gamba, and hope that this release will inspire other gambists to stretch their musical ambitions beyond the printed score.
